Alfa Romeo Tonale, a compact SUV with hybrid and plug-in hybrid engines and unmistakable style
The new Alfa Romeo Tonale reaches a segment in full swing: that of the “premium” SUVs of the B-segment, with another proposal, which brings the sporting spirit and the most advanced technologies to the fore, including two of the new ways of electrification: hybrid and plug-in hybrid. With all the sports DNA of the Italian brand, the Alfa Romeo Tonale combines the dynamism of coupés with the elevated driving position, interior space and versatility of SUVs.
In its 130 hp Alfa Romeo Tonale Edizione Speziale version, it is available from 299 euros per month (36 installments), with an entry fee of 8,682 euros and a final installment of 24,180 euros. With this model, Alfa Romeo is on the road to electrified mobility that will culminate in its conversion to a fully electric company in 2027. The new vision of SUVs embodied by the Alfa Romeo Tonale stands out for its spectacular design, with a style that represents the synthesis between the sports history of the transalpine brand and the development of a new aesthetic and new canons. Its innovative “3+3” headlamps and taillights without curves form an unmistakable light signature.
The interior bears the stamp of Alfa Romeo’s history in the world of competition and sports cars. The design focuses on the driver and also provides maximum comfort for all occupants, emphasizing interior finishes in materials such as aluminum and leather. The Alfa Romeo Tonale comes on the market with two levels of electrification: Hybrid and Plug-in Hybrid Q4. The Tonale debuts with a hybrid version of 130 hp and front-wheel drive (from 36,250 euros), with a new 1.5 liter 4-cylinder petrol engine delivering 240 newton meters of maximum torque, combined with a 48-volt electric motor, with 15 kW (20 hp) and 55 newton meters of torque and a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.
Also available is the Tonale Hybrid VGT with 160 hp and front-wheel drive (from 41,000 euros), with turbocharger. The top of the range is represented by the 275 hp Q4 Plug-in Hybrid Tonale, a high-performance version with four-wheel drive and 80 kilometers of autonomy in fully electric driving mode. This new SUV includes premium connectivity and infotainment systems designed to perform integrated updates with Amazon Alexa. Its two 22.5-inch TFT screens are a benchmark in the segment. In terms of safety, the driver assistance functions ensure level 2 autonomous driving. It is worth drawing attention to the adaptive cruise control, automatic lane centering, cross-traffic warning and rear blind spot vision and the 360- degree camera.
